Bowl lotus, as its name implies, is a lotus planted in a bowl, which is specially used to be used on several indoor tables to beautify the living environment. It is now mostly used as a desk to admire plants and can beautify the working environment. Today we will share the Planting method!
How to grow bowl lotus
Planting environment of bowl lotus
Hi sunny, not into shade. It is hot, and the suitable growth temperature is 20-30 ° C. The growth stagnation occurs when the temperature is lower than 15 ° C. Like wet and afraid of dry, like relatively stable still water. Organic rich fertile clay is appropriate. A suitable pH is 6.5.
Sowing time of bowl lotus
The lotus seeds have no dormancy period, as long as the water temperature can be maintained above 16 ° C, they can be sown in all seasons. Under suitable conditions of temperature and light, lotus seeds need 50 to 60 days from sowing to flowering in spring and 60 to 80 days in autumn.
Seed treatment of bowl lotus
The shell of the lotus seed is hard and dense. It must be artificially broken before soaking. The lotus seed has a small tip on one end and a small pit on the other. Scratch the end with the small dent on the rough concrete floor and wear a layer of skin, taking care not to hurt the kernel inside, and do not remove the shell. The purpose of the microdermabrasion is to allow water to infiltrate through this gap and make the seeds absorb water and swell. How to deal with the seeds of bowl lotus? There are many ways to deal with the end of the pit. The usual methods are: ① Grind the seed coat on the concrete floor. ② Break it with a vise. ③ Use a sharp small utility knife to cut off a small piece of seed coat. ④ Soak for a few days so that the seed coat becomes soft and easy to handle.
Seed soaking of bowl lotus
Soak the shelled seeds in warm water at about 20-40 degrees. When the water temperature is lower than 20 degrees, the seeds germinate and grow too slowly. Moderate thermal insulation when soaking seeds in a small amount in the home. The speed of germination is also related to the temperature. Under the condition of 30 degrees, the seed can be germinated within 3-5 days after soaking, and the germ protrudes from the opening. .
During this period, change the water every 1-2 days. Generally, as long as the seed coat can absorb water and swell, it will germinate. What are the precautions for soaking seeds in bowl lotus: ① If the temperature is low, you can use a thermos cup and 30 degrees warm water. Above 20 degrees, it can be used indoors or outdoors. ② Change the water twice a day, I usually change it once in the morning and in the evening; ③ The water must be over the depth of the seed; ④ The temperature is high and the germination is fast. Usually above 20 degrees, 3 days to a week germination.
Bowl lotus flowerpot selection
Although it is called a bowl lotus, if it is cultivated in a vegetable bowl, it is too small and too shallow. If the bowl is too shallow, the nutrient soil is too small to allow the plant to get sufficient nutrients; if it is too small to stretch the fibrous roots, it will not grow well. A suitable size is to ensure that the diameter of the container is about 25 to 85 cm. The depth is about 20 to 60 cm. Make sure that the soil about 35cm deep allows the roots to fully grow.
Soil selection for bowl lotus
The bowl lotus requires pond mud or paddy mud with rich humus as the cultivation soil, and industrial pollution soil must not be used. Yellow mud has high viscosity and should be used in an appropriate amount. Excessive stickiness will affect the elongation of the whip and the swelling of the whip. Sandy soil is loose and not sticky enough, and it is easily damaged by wind damage. It is advisable to mix mud and sandy soil at a ratio of 7: 3. If there is no sandy soil, yellow sand can be added, but the ratio is slightly smaller. You can directly use the pastoral soil of the vegetable field; in the city, you can also use the spring soil of potted flowers for potting and half of the yellow mud as the cultivation soil.
Sprouts of bowl lotus transplanted
Select pots or plastic flower pots with bottom holes of 25cm to 75cm in diameter, add half pots of pastoral soil or river pond mud without chemical pollution in the pots, soak them in water two weeks in advance, do not fertilize When transplanting, press the fine roots of Xiaohe seedlings into the mud, and plant one plant per pot. After transplanting, add an appropriate amount of water to the extent that the water does not flood the little lotus leaves.
Fertilization method of bowl lotus
The lotus in the bowl is very fertile. Without fertilizer, the roots and leaves are slow and lack vitality. Therefore, a small amount of rotten cake fertilizer or soybean bran and peanut bran should be mixed into the pot soil before planting as the bottom fertilizer. However, although the bowl lotus is a fertilizer-loving plant, you should not over-fertilize it, especially because the bowl lotus has a small container, a small plant, and a small amount of fertilizer. More severely, the plants can die. If excessive fertilization is found, the water must be changed frequently to bleach away part of the fertilizer solution and make it thin. The bowl of lotus is fat, but not intolerant of heavy fat. Generally, a small amount of base fertilizer such as cake manure is mixed in the cultivation soil when planting, which can meet the needs of the whole year, and there is no need to apply topdressing to avoid excessive growth. However, in order to prolong the flowering period, a piece of plum kernel-sized rotten cake fertilizer can be used as top dressing in summer, and it can be stuffed into the mud in the center of the bowl. Do not apply around the wall of the bowl. Easy to cause root injury. The base fertilizer should not be applied too much, otherwise the lighter leaves will bloom and the lighter ones will burn the seeds.
Lighting requirements of bowl lotus
The bowl of lotus is full of sunlight. If the light is less than 4 hours a day, flower buds cannot form. During the childbearing period, it should be placed on the balcony or on the window sill to allow it to receive full sunlight. The bowl lotus plant is delicate, and it should be properly shaded around noon in summer and early autumn and avoid direct sunlight. If exposed to strong light, the leaves and petals are easily scorched.
After a year's cultivation of bowl lotus, the fertility decreases and the underground rhizomes are dense.
Bowl lotus trimming technique
When the leaves are too long and too dense, some leaves can be removed appropriately to facilitate the plant to breathe. Also helps flowering. When using the same container for multiple breeding, when the leaves are found to have strong sunlight, they should be cultured in pots in a timely manner.
